"Spider Man Theme" as written by and J. Robert Harris Paul Francis Webster....
Spider-man, Spider-man
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size
Catches thieves, just like flies
Look out! Here comes the Spider-man!

Is he strong? Listen, Bud!
He's got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread?
Take a look overhead.
Hey there, there goes the Spider-man!

In the chill of night,
At the scene of the crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives just in time

Spider-man, Spider-man
Friendly neighborhood Spider-man
Wealth and fame, he's ignored
Action is his reward
To him, life is a great big bang-up
Wherever there's a hang-up
You'll find the Spider-man!

    General CommentWell obviously this is the Spiderman theme song. But Aerosmith does an amazing version of it. I mean really, even though he is singing about a "spiderman" they make the song sound totally rockin'. Aerosmith has amazing talent.... if they can make a song like this sound great!

    I like it a lot. Sometimes I'll be singing it to myself and people stare at me like I am stupid. But, I know that its a really cool song! WOOHOO! Go me!

    :)

    General CommentI LOVE Aerosmith, and I always knew that they were good...But I still can't believe what they did for this song! It's amazing! (no pun inteneded!) If these guys can take a totally boring song, and make it that good, then I believe they can do anything! Once you've had Aerosmith, you never go back!

    General CommentGod, I'm a geek....sorry.
    One more thing, though...what's the point of making a song for a movie, if it's not even going to be in the movie? I watched Spiderman for two reasons. To hear This song, and Chad Kroeger's song, Hero...Where were they????

    General CommentAerosmith nailed this. the original was so boring and dull and when the intro hits u, u can feel the heavy rocking, and yet when he started singing the lyrics i burst out laughing, this is the ultimate contrast to the original and i agree with OzzyGuru i sing this out load too and get looks! awesome!!
